Tamar partners, UFG still in gas supply talks

Partners in the Tamar natural gas field offshore Israel said they are still in talks with Spain’s Union Fenosa Gas to supply gas to UFG’s liquefaction facilities in Damietta, Egypt.

The Tamar partners had signed a non-binding agreement with UFG in 2014  to supply 2.5 trillion cubic feet (Tcf) of natural gas over a 15-year period to the Damietta plant.

In a statement on Monday, the Tamar partners said that talks continue with UFG which co-owns the liquefaction plant in Egypt together with Italian company Eni.

The statement came as a response to reports by Egyptian media saying that UFG’s partner Eni, instead of the Tamar partners, will supply the gas from its giant Zohr field located offshore Egypt.

“The Partnerships wishes to clarify that, contrary to implications arising from the said reports, and following clarifications received from UFG on the matter, the parties are even now continuing to conduct negotiations on a continuous basis with the aim of reaching a binding agreement for the supply of natural gas from the Tamar project to the existing UFG liquefaction plants in Egypt.”

Noble Energy operates Tamar with a 36 percent working interest. Other interest owners are Isramco Negev 2 with 28.75 percent, Delek Drilling with 15.6 percent, Avner Oil Exploration with 15.6 percent, and Dor Gas Exploration with the remaining four percent.

In June 2018, Senegal will play host to the No.1 Annual B2B Upstream Oil & Gas event, which will bring together the senior decision makers from across the prolific West Africa region to discuss the trends and challenges currently facing the Oil and Gas industry.

Since the discovery by Tullow Oil in 2007 of the Jubilee Field in Ghana, the Upstream sector has refocused its efforts to explore similar plays around the entire West and North West African coast. These efforts were rewarded with Cairn Energy’s prolific discovery in 2014 followed by Kosmos’ in 2015. The West Africa region has the industry’s spotlight firmly focused on further unlocking the potential of this largely underexplored region.

Companies that will be looking toward further unlocking the deepwater hydrocarbon potential of West Africa include: PETROSEN, BP, Kosmos Energy, Cairn Energy, FAR, Total E&P, Premier Oil, Shell, Tullow Oil along with the Ministries and key solution providers.
